The village of Upper Slaughter, mentioned in connection with the school myth, is actually a real place in the Cotswold area of Gloucestershire. See more »
In one brief scene, Don is sitting in a second floor classroom looking out a window at Clemsie, who is standing on a paved path several yards from the classroom building. You can tell by the light shining on Don's face and from Clemsie's shadow that the sun is shining against the window. Clemsie appears to see Don wave slightly at her, but in those light conditions, all anyone could see in such a window would be glaring light. You'd have to stand at the window and create some shade to see through the glass well enough to perceive anything meaningful. See more »
Just come out of watching what was billed as a horror comedy. What I saw was so little of either that even Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Michael Sheen couldn't salvage a comprehensive description of what this film is meant to be.
Expectations were always going to be high with the talent involved - a film in this genre with Pegg and Frost of course makes you think you might be about to witness a new instalment in the Cornetto trilogy - but even the performances from all involved (including Neil's dad from The Inbetweeners and a few glimpses of Margot Robbie) couldn't forge an enjoyable film.
There seems to be nothing that connects the story together. Plot threads go nowhere or end as abruptly as they were introduced. Sequences are edited to point of inducing nausea.
I'm really sorry, but I'm so disappointed by this film. My expectations weren't high going in, but it successfully limboed underneath even my lowest of expectations.
Best quote: "I don't want to die unfulfilled." - "I don't want to die a virgin." - "I don't want to die wearing Greek sandals!"
